Building Below the Waterline: Strengthening the Life of a Leader by Gordon MacDonald and published by Hendrickson.
How is leadership like a bridge? In this important work, Gordon MacDonald gives the reader a blueprint for leading a life that is at once powerful and humble, productive yet unhurried, focused yet expansive. By telling stories from life and sharing the wisdom of people like Henri Nouwen and Richard Foster, he takes us step-by-step through the interior processes and qualities necessary to lead others effectively. Building below the Waterline delivers hard-won lessons on building a strong foundation for Christian leaders in all areas of ministry. This book is not just for pastors. It is a powerful manual for anyone who answers God's call upon their life and says, "take me".
